    Default Mr. Jones Sun and Moon

    Picked up this Mr Jones Sun and Moon watch on auction recently - Was kicking myself when I passed up their 50% off 10th anniversary sale back in 2017, but fortunately I caught some people napping on this deal.

    The "sun and moon" watches are a very unique way of telling time. From 6am to 6pm, the sun tracks across the sky & serves as the hour indicator. From 6pm to 6am, the moon does the same. Best part is the artwork which transitions from day to night & back again - it's like carrying a moving painting on my wrist.

    What else I like:
    1. Strap is remarkable quality. Very soft - feels great.
    2. Slightly domed crystal gets some nice distortion at certain angles
    3. Brushed case will help it look better for longer
    4. Wears surprisingly large for a 37mm. My wrist is 7 inches on a humid day, and it fits me very well. Picture is misleading with the angle - actually a lot of room between end of the lugs and edge of my wrist.

    Pardon my ignorance, how does it keep track of minutes.

    Also the hour dial is too small.
    "Aiyah Panerai, buay beh liao eh lah."

    PM me if you want to sell your Kevin, Ted Su, Wotancraft, Piotr or Simona Straps.

    Strap size is 24 mm and or 26 mm and at least 80mm by 140mm or larger.

    The dial you're looking at keeps track of minutes. The hour is tracked by the position of either the sun or moon in the drawing of the sky

    It looks like the time is 8:55 am in the picture however the hour market does not reflect the minute time.

    5:41 pm.
    Like a moonphase indicator, the moon will appear at the left side of the upper sky window, the first tick there denoting 6pm. This will coincide with the sun centered on the last tick, also indicating 6pm.
    We are all related in time since time is relative to us all.

    Didn't see the other poster so I can't delete this, but yes - the time is 5:41pm in that picture.
